5 Desserts You Can Make With 5 Ingredients Or Fewer (Recipes)
If you're too busy snuggling under blankets, being generally cozy and enjoying that pre-fall weather to spend too much time or energy making elaborate desserts, don't you worry.
In fact, you can sit back on that couch for a few more minutes and finish that tv show, because there are a ton of super easy desserts that come together with minimal effort that will still satisfy your sweet tooth and impress your guests.
And you know what? They all have five ingredients or fewer, so you might not even need to run to the store before you start baking, mixing or blending. Have fun!
1. Apple Pie Crescents
It's not difficult to slice up some fresh apples and roll them up with apple pie spice, brown sugar and butter, but guess what? You can make things even more impossibly simple -- just use a can of apple pie filling instead and you're good to go.
2. Cake Batter Milkshake
Got the urge to eat cake batter straight out of the mixing bowl? I don't blame you one bit, although this is a much more dignified (and fancy!) way to guzzle the stuff -- you can even mix in a bit of actual cake, cookie pieces or candy if you like it extra sweet.
3. Dulce De Leche Rice Krispies Treats
You know how easy the regular bars are, right? You just mix up the cereal with melted butter and marshmallows and pretty much call it a day. Stir in just one more ingredient -- rich, gooey dulce de leche -- and it's hardly any more work, but it is just that much more scrumptious and fun.
4. Pumpkin Butter Pecan Gingersnap Rolls
Whoa! That name alone is too good for this world. Talk about a perfect fall dessert! Here's how to make your own pumpkin butter, if you want to go the extra mile.
5. Cake Mix Cookies
It's a simple concept. You take a box of cake mix -- any flavor, whatever is tastiest or within arm's reach -- and mix it up with eggs, oil and anything else you want, like candy pieces or chocolate chips. And there's your dough ... it's so easy!
